Interdepartmental Graduate Concentration in Central and Eastern European Studies
The interdepartmental graduate concentration in Central and Eastern European Studies is an option for graduate students in the sponsoring departments to take in addition to their regular course of departmental study.
Given the recent changes in Europe and Russia, the concentration allows students to explore the historical and cultural background to many contemporary issues whether political, aesthetic, linguistic, or social within “the new Europe.”
Courses are taught in English.
